    Dishwasher causing knocking.

    Thanks for you help. I will get a shorter hose and open the valve and see if it works, fingers crossed but get it replaced, i don't want any accidents. I'll let you know how i get on. Cheers.

    Dishwasher causing knocking.

    If the hose is kinked at all would this be a problem? The lever does turn but nothing happens so it could be half closed, will it need to be replaced or is there another way to get it fully open?

    Dishwasher causing knocking.

    This valve is open. The hose is 2.5 meters long but the dishwasher and valve is 0.6m apart, would a shorter hose help or is it more serious.
